Spelling variation of Luca; Italian place name

Lucca Origin and Meaning

The name Lucca is both a boy's name and a girl's name .
This spelling is more unisex than either Luca or Luka, perhaps because it is also an Italian city name. However, it fell for both genders in 2021, as the Disney movie Luca sent that spelling skyrocketing.

Its origin is lost in the mists of time, but may come from a word meaning "marsh", and has also been connected to Latin words leaning "sacred wood" and "cut" — so perhaps a woodland clearing. For the musically inclined, Lucca is the birthplace of composers including Giacomo Puccini and Luigi Boccherini.
